Adasteris is a trio consisting of Gary Howe (vocals/guitar/programming), Aidan Culver (bass/guitar/vocals) and Leonie Doyle (synths/keyboards/vocals). The group formed in Dublin, Ireland when Howe and Culver met in 2008 and decided to follow in the footsteps of drift-guitar noise and electronica artists by forming a diverse act in a changing music scene. Built on a progressive rock and noise guitar foundation, the music combines post-rock and warp like electronica. Live, the band combines their own arthouse projections with the music, for truly atmospheric performances.
The band's name comes from a Rip Torn quote from the film The Man Who Fell To Earth "Per ardua ad astra" and the song sung by the HAL9000 computer in the film 2001: A Space Odyssey. It is meant in a "as above so below" context, that daisies reflect the stars.
In 2010 the band recorded Arabian Hyperspace, a short-run, six-track promo EP the group sent to labels as a demo. The band also began work on their debut album "The Mercurial Fountain" at this time, the demos for which Howe had been producing in his home studio since 2008. The Mercurial Fountain was completed in 2012.
